We had a great time shooting on location at the Pirate Speedway this weekend for an OC Weekly cover shoot. A raging ring of fire and a stuntman on a fast bike with no brakes, can it get more exciting? Check out our final image in this weeks issue of OC Weekly.
Here is a portrait of our stuntman Shawn McConnell:
And last but not least, a Rickett and Sones “making of” video:
We are so thankful that our beautiful friend/actor/musician extraordinaire Tamara Feldman joined us as the star of our latest “Invasion” shoot last month! MUA: Veronica Chanel, Hair: Zaley Blumenthal. Many thanks ladies!!
Rickett & Sones are now being repped by the (ahem) wonderful people at Wonderful Machine, and already they have been, well, wonderful! This week they featured a shoot we did on their blog, check it out. We are overwhelmed with gratitude and humbled by how great everyone at Wonderful Machine has been.
We were pretty excited when LA Canvas reached out and asked us to shoot a portrait for their latest “Hidden Issue” and even more excited we found out we’d be shooting musician Jonathan Bates aka Big Black Delta.
Ron Finley is a badass. He works hard to create wellness awareness in urban environments by planting gardens in low-income homes, sidewalks, you name it. In particular he aims to turn ‘food deserts’ (urban areas with no access to organic foods) into ‘food forests’ using what is readily available in these areas: open space.
Imagine a world where lunchtime means foraging in your own neighborhood. Where city kids can have organic salads instead of Happy Meals. Better yet, these kids can eat the meals they helped to grow! As Ron puts it, “If kids grow kale, kids eat kale.”
We had the privilege of photographing Ron in his garden, which was an amazing experience. Thriving only begins to describe how much life is bursting from his sidewalk utopia. After the shoot he loaded us up with armfuls of greens and we got to experience firsthand the fruits of his labors. Did you know there was a mustard green that tastes exactly like wasabi? Neither did we!
People like Ron are making the world a better place, and inspiring others to do the same. The rest of us need to put our shovels where our mouths are and go “plant some shit!”
Put together a quick beauty test shoot this week. With summer fast approaching we decided to go with a Hawaiian Tropic feel. Thank you India Wadsworth (Next), Melany Bennett (Next), Veronica Chanel and Crystal Liz.
